  • I am so schocked and saddened to learn of Ann’s passing. Ann was one of my best childhood friends. We grew up a street away from each other in Quincy. I used to go to her house and call her name standing in front of her house as we did back then. We had so much fun together! I remember her family. Her Mom Dad brothers and grandmother who lived with them. They were all so kind. And her cousin Marilyn who lived near by. We lost touch but reconnected on Facebook and we had plans to try to get together. Happily I ran into her in Quincy one day. It was so wonderful to see her and the memories flooded back in. I told her she looked exactly the same. What a beautiful person and how blessed I am to have had her as my childhood friend. My heart goes out to all of her family and friends. What a terrible loss. Perfect peace and love to you my friend. Love Lauri
